The world's largest pizza chain is turning 50 years old. Louisville-based Pizza Hut is celebrating its half-century mark with a new look.
New additions include plasma TVs, sports bars, and local sports memorabilia. And its menu now includes baked pasta and fried chicken wings.
The rising cost of cheese and flour makes this a difficult time for pizza makers. Last year, because of leases ending and restaurants being sold, Pizza Hut Inc. closed more U.S. restaurants than it opened.
The Yum company is hoping that its new menu will help it through this tough time.
